Swordsman online is a free to play, open pvp game from Perfect World Beijing. It is set in a fantastical chinese setting based on The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber wuxia setting. Some regard it as a polished, far more enjoyable version of the similar game Age of Wushu.

It launched yesterday.

Here are some samples of the gameplay:

How to play with goons

Download Arc here
http://games.arcgames.com/en/

Download the game via arc.

First you have to be on the server US East Claymore. You can not be on the other US east server or any other server.

You will need to be level 20 then you can apply to the guild “GoonTangClan”. You just open up the guild list, find us, and apply.

Since we don't know if you are a goon or not let us know your name in this thread. Otherwise you might be niggerstomper59 who just applied.

Features:

Intriguing class system

Sheep based PvP



Respectfully draws on the Deep well of Chinese culture and heritage for inspiration




Flying Mounts




Glorious Character creator




Deep and Rich Cash Shop





Graffiti system foe painting the town red (red colour not included)





Goon Testimonials:

"School costumes (Girls) :

Most sensible - Splendor
Most sexy - S&M
Most knickers showing - Zephyr
Best hats - 5Venoms"
- Aleksander noted upskirt expert


"The grind is more heinous than I thought, and after the event last night and seeing how gems are blowing up on Lash, I can see the p2w at the end of the tunnel. I find the arenas very fun, and like the idea of being in a tournament, but that can only carry things so far, Add to that my fiance bitching me out last night about gaming too much."
- Haroshia Goon Tang Clan head diplomat


New Goons:



You must reach lvl 20 before applying to the guild, also it is best to stay online and pm a goon to accept you, after posting your in game name in this thread. The quickest way to level is to quest until lvl 15 then solo the first dungeon after turning on your double xp buff (top of screen beige EXP button next to LV number).

You should also enter a tutor number. Hit escape key, and choose tutor button far left, and paste a code into the box for tutor. This gives you a box of goodies every 10 levels.

Tutor codes
HyC's: 23070000000131088460
whoopy: 23070000000212000844

At level 50 players can pick up students and provide them with daily experience and a 15% experience buff for 30 minutes. The buff can be applied by the master all day long, and if the master is not doing it the student can ask for it a limited number of times. So when you join the guild ask for mentors and start using that bonus xp.



Diplomacy:

"In 2 days Zhou will discuss getting us into their alliance. Hopefully that stops people from being tards." - Haroshia Goontang CLan diplomat.

Saving second post for useful stuff.

thehacker0 on archage posted:

Exactly

Some random ideas for focused groups: Navy, Economic warfare, Bureau of land Management (or something like that), farmers/crafters/builders, Siege warfare.

Some are more specialized than others obviously. Given the different types of PvP, we could consider having groups (really just a subforum and maybe an IRC/mumble channel) for guys who want to do lots of naval pirating, siege lots of keeps, roam around ganking, or whatever.

These 'groups' really help break down a large guild and make it easier to hang out on mumble and make friends when you don't have 300 people in a mumble channel.

Leadership for the core areas of the game is also important. Eve online goons have a 'sky marshal' (aka a field commander as you mentioned) who coordinates operations, guys in charge of recon, logistics, industry/markets, a spymaster, etc etc. The benefit being that guys develop specific skills/experience and get really really good at what they do.

thehacker0 from archage posted:

I'd like to present a few things I've learned from playing another sandbox mmo with goons - eve online. I'm sure I'm not the only guy who has played that game, and I will try not to go on about it, however I feel that the lessons could be valuable to us.

1. Goons together are vastly more powerful than when fragmented. In the first few years of Eve Online, there were many goon corps (guilds) and there was no one place to call home. All of these guilds eventually failed, some due to pubbie influence, drama, and elitism and other things. Eventually, one guild was founded that was open to all goons. Since then, it has prospered and has been the most powerful in the game.

2. Special interest groups can be extremely helpful to the guild as a whole. Someone above mentioned commerce goons - that could potentially be extended to a commerce 'group,' perhaps with a mumble channel and subforum. Any goons who are interested in commerce and join those channels and benefit from and contribute to the body of knowledge. This can be applied to housing, crafting, naval combat and other interests.

3. jabber/irc or other out of game channels of real time communication can be great for coordination, community and fun.

I'm new to archeage, but just thought these ideas might be helpful to think about as release approaches. See you all in beta

to know more?


When (that's no) moon hits this guy like a big Twi'lek guy: Liberatore!


So, are you starting a new character or just new to the game? Do you want to level quickly and effortlessly? Then read on.

Firstly, to do this properly, you will need endurance pills. You get 10 from one of the free packs (tutor or newbie) and whether that lasts you 10, 5 or 3 days is up to you. They cost 10 sycee (10 cents) or about 24 silver; A guild bonus quest takes a couple minutes at most and gives 12 silver, if you'd rather not spend any money.

    [1-25] Quest up to level 25. This should take under half an hour.
    [25-34] Solo Attack By Night. The instance runs itself, and with double XP you will get to 34 in under 40 minutes.
    [34+] Start running events (bamboo, guild events) and guild activities (kidnaps, hijacks) daily.
    [35+] Bot. Preferably in the "Party Up" areas, which are 1.5x as efficient per world energy spent compared to normal mobs. Depending on your school and gear, this may be too slow, and you don't want to waste endurance pills at this point, so feel free to switch to normal mobs.
    [40-50] You can now do the first open PvP dungeon, but you can only reasonably solo (and especially bot) through it as a few schools. I botted from 48 to 50 in it as a Shaolin, but otherwise the "Party Up" areas were a better use of my Drive. Not to mention it's a small dungeon and the odds of being killed are high. Dungeons are about three times as efficient per world energy spent as regular mobs.
    [50-52] Use this time to upgrade your current gear, whatever it may be. You want everything to be at least +4. You may want to eat an endurance pill or two here.
    [52-60] Bot your entire world energy through the level 50 dungeon, in Mount Majesty. Once your energy is out, feel free to use any extra endurance pills to upgrade your gear.

Doing this, I've managed 3-5 levels a day from 40 to 50 and 1.5-2 levels a day from 50 to 60. That's 7-10 days to hit level 60, and most of it is botting.

Sadly, botting in dungeons without good gear is not an option for all schools. Schools with good self healing, heavy AoE damage or CC and good defensive stat scaling tend to have a much easier time. Fortunately most of them fit into at least one of these categories.

After level 60, you continue doing the same thing, switching to the next dungeon (in Twilight Ridge) and upgrading your gear when your world energy is out. But this is pretty much where you stop caring, as levels continually become less important and gear more important.

Fun thing to do.

Mercenary companies, which are player run, have a built in quest option to transport a resource cart across several maps. This means you can slow down or stop completely their progress by attacking them.

What does it get you?

Nothing but infamy and the chat logs of very angry and insecure players. They project that we're mad when they get killed by us. They drop clever humdinger Internet lines such as "u mad" and "noob"

Also if you fight with goons in arena and figure out how your class works, you have become better than 90 percent of the player base in this game. Watch in delight as someone dumps their entire googled combo on you and you stand and block the entire thing.

Also if you join up make sure you ask for tutor stuff ASAP. This is a dump increase of Xp for twenty or so minutes from your tutor. You can initiate it five times per level. Your tutor can do it unlimited times. This will cut bullshit down by a staggering amount. Also if you poop sock the events to get to your tutors level or close you can get bonus Xp and karma (to buy infamy reduction pills)
